We invite you to join us in worship.

For nearly 3 ½ centuries, “The Little Yellow Church” has stood on Titicut Green

and has let its “Light Shine”! It has served as a powerful beacon that never dims

and has always lit the way to God’s love and Jesus’ teachings.

Our worship services are also live streamed and posted on our Facebook page.

A recent service closed with this benediction:  "May God guide your feet to walk on the path of righteousness all the days of your life. May God hold your hands and lead you in the ways of kindness and justice. May God stay your mind on all just and good things so that all may come to know the freedom of service to God. And may God take hold of your heart and teach it to love fiercely in his name, so that all the days of your life each person you encounter will know you as a child of God and a child of love, mercy, and grace."
